Study shows cane sugar, corn sweeteners have similar effects on appetite
... Monsivais. Much of the evidence that linked corn sweeteners
with obesity came from animal-based metabolic studies using pure fructose. This study, on the other hand, used beverages sweetened with two types of high-fructose corn syrup: HFCS 55, which contains about 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose; a...
